The DP-201 is simplicity where I need it most. Normally I'm into (a great fan of) cutting-edge multi-purpose smartphone/tablet gadgetry. But, when it comes to capturing interviews or fleeting ideas and inspiration, I need the quick and simple. I need to record without hindrance, without touch screen fumbles and multi-steps, without the uncertainty that I'm actually recording.
I was attracted to the DP201 for exactly the same reason I'd reject most other gadgets... those three unmistakable function buttons, the ones that make it look like a toddler's toy. There's great satisfaction and reassurance in the feel of these buttons on my thumb, and in the ability to operate the recorder based on touch alone. It sits at the ready in my breast pocket, small and light, barely noticeable.

I have noticed other comments here about the inability to delete recordings. I also had a hard time figuring out how to do this. The instruction flier, though obviously made with simplicity in mind (step-by-step animations), is really quite confusing. And the icons that appear on the recorder's screen when trying to delete are equally confusing. For instance, the "X" icon that you can select and enter really means to cancel the erase command, when intuitively an "X" means to delete something (at least in my American mind). I would explain more here, but it'd be even more confusing. The steps to erase messages are quite simple, and should have been explained better in the manual.

Cons...
-- Inability to rename files.
-- Inability to transfer or share recordings.

These aren't cons for me, personally. I prefer less options with this tool. I use it mainly to capture what I say or who I interview, and transcribe directly from the device later.

I use digital recorders a lot. They're great at work to capture ideas on the fly. They're helpful bedside to verbally "jot down" that thought you want to capture. How many times are you lying in bed and remember something you need to do, or get an idea, only to forget it by morning? It frees up your mind to not have to keep repeating that thought, knowing it's captured on your recorder. This recorder is easy to use for recording, but has a poor erase function. Not only is erase difficult, it's confusing regarding which message you're erasing. Erasing messages in the dark is impossible. For that reason, I wouldn't buy this again.

Digital Voice Recorder

Comments about Olympus DP-201 Digital Voice Recorder:

This recorder is small and relatively simple to use. The microphone is very sensitive and the noise reduction switch is extremely helpful in large group settings. Because I use it to prepare minutes for several meetings each month I like the menu feature. I can very easily find the particular meeting that I am looking for and although ear buds do not come with it, there is a place to attach them so that I can work without disturbing those around me.
I highly recommend this unit if you are looking for a digital voice recorder that takes up little space and yet is very powerful.

Comments about Olympus DP-201 Digital Voice Recorder:

I was looking for a compact device that was easy to operate and had the ability to store large amounts of recording that I could access by date. The Olympus met my requirements and was very affordable. Side tabs for Menu Search, play speed, erase, noise cancellation, high/low microphone sensitivity are conveniently locaed. The front controls are intuitively easy to understand and operate. Other compact recorders I have had in the past required I use multi-function buttons that were difficult to remember and took too much time. I definitely like this recorder!
